How important is it that my orthopedic surgeon is fellowship trained?  How do I chose the best doctor for my surgery?

Depends on surgery: First and foremost, you should make sure that your surgeon is board certified (check www.Abos.Org). Depending on the type of surgery you are having, it may not be necessary for the surgeon to have completed a fellowship. There are many "bread and butter" surgeries that any orthopaedist can do.

What is the I deal weight for a 5ft 5 Australian female aged 22 years old? Is BMI a good measure to rely on?

Can't tell, but...: A starting point is 130 lbs. A lot depends on a person's body build. Some are naturally very thin, others thick or big-boned, but most people are somewhere in between. "Australian" is a location, so that doesn't help either, as many different types of bodies are in Australia. BMI is helpful if a person is of average musculature. If very muscular, a perfectly fine person will have a high BMI. ...Read more
